Back to the polls

Expect to hear a lot more about tax measures in the coming weeks. Town hall meetings will start soon for Measure W, helping eligible voters decide on May 2 the following question:


Shall the Southern Humboldt Community Healthcare District renew its expiring parcel tax to continue providing local access to hospital emergency care, physician clinic services, other healthcare programs and services, including a new hospital and new or improved healthcare facilities? The renewed tax will be at a new rate of $170 per year on all qualified parcels, annually providing $1.63 million dollars per year for 45 years beginning July 1, 2018.
